Reposting … The fun happened last weekend AND HAPPENS AGAIN THIS WEEKEND!
Heifer International Living Gift Market
This Saturday and Sunday -December 13 and 14
10 a.m. – 4 p.m
at Heifer International
216 Wachusett St., Rutland
Get out to the country this weekend! Experience the peace of nature that feels like TRUE Christmas!
Ditch the crowds, the gift-grabbing yahoos … the avarice and head to Heifer International for their holiday event!
What a great way to teach kids about other cultures, other kids around the world … yes, there’s the poverty, but there’s more … open their eyes!
You know how this vegetarian feels about killing animals, but you can make your donation go toward buying cows/animals that are milked. Usually, on these tiny family farms, the animals are cared for, considered so very important because the families’ survival depends on them!
And, at this special holiday market, you also get to:
See and buy FAIR TRADE gifts from around the world!
Drink hot cocoa and cider!
Munch gingerbread animal cookies!
Get toasty warm around a cool bonfire!
A donation of a couple of cans of soup, beans, vegetables, etc. for poor families.
